snoring dog

My boyfriend has just recently moved in with me and he brought his dog with him. I have no problem with her being here but at night she snores and pants in her sleep, she is a pretty big dog and when she pants she shakes the entire bed. Some nights it is so bad that i have to go sleep out on the couch. What can do to get her to stop?

  • I would be telling my BF, that the dog is not sleeping in the bedroom any more. If he has a problem with that I would tell him and his dog to move back out. If he is going to take the dogs side over you the relationship will not work anyways

  • you can't get her to stop the panting is their way of cooling off and the snoring well i have always had big dogs and they all snored louder then any one else the only thing you can do is have the dog sleep in another room

  • Ew, I hate animals on furniture first off, lol.
    But yes, I would tell him that the dog isn't sleeping with you anymore, you need sleep at night more than that dog! She can sleep whenever she wants, haha.

  • Is she over weight? The amount of panting she is doing in her sleeps sounds like she may have a weight problem...that could also cause a lot of the snoring problems as well. (same as in humans) I would check into that before I banned her from the bedroom...if though she is just a loud snoring dog, I guess she would have to have a bed some place down the hall.. GOOD luck...both with the live in situation and the dog ;o)

  • I should have named my dog Pig...She looks like a pig, snores like a pig, grunts when she eats like i pig, she's a pig!!!! (shes a pit/american bull dog mix) she drives me nuts! but i know theres nothing i can do about it because she has such a short snout...tell your bf if shes gonna sleep in your room, you're gonna crate her..that or she can sleep in another room. it's your house, not the dogs.

  • I know my dog snores if she hadn't gotten any exercise that day. How often does he take his dog out to be exercised. That could help.
